Spring is just around the corner but this weekend Daylight Saving Time will begin. At 2 a.m. on March 8, clocks will move forward an hour to 3 a.m.
Sleep will be lost, but the daylight hours will increase. Firefighters also use this an opportunity to remind residents to change the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors which can help protect you and your family in emergency situations.
Other spring cleaning you should think about this weekend:
- Book your air conditioning tune up for the spring now, contractors schedules are starting to fill up.
- Ensure that your plumbing and drainage systems are in good working condition, and understand how they function and how to maintain them.
- Take a walk around your house and make a list of repairs you need to do but may not have noticed in the fall – foundation cracks, damaged eavestroughs, missing shingles etc.
Daylight Saving Time is set to expire on Nov. 1, 2020, when the clocks will fall back an hour.
